This sunset that I was mesmerized with, I will never see again. All sunsets are unique, just like all people are. Taking time to stop and appreciate sunsets is one way we can connect ourselves with nature and how everything, however magnificent, can only be admired and experienced fleetingly. We may be in the here and now but when we are just memories that linger in the hearts and minds of the people who love us and whom we have touched in special ways, these sunsets will still be here being admired by the next generation after ours.
Savor special moments that may be gone right before our eyes. Soak in the colors and sounds of these fleeting moments but have these etch in our memories for when the ability to experience these are gone, there are pockets of memories that we can still hold on to and remember with fondness.
I am a “passenger seat drive-by photographer” when we go out of town. I think I have almost perfected the art of taking photos from a moving vehicle. Not that the photos are all good but there is always one or two or even more that turns out quite well.
These are the mountains one can see along the SCTEx or the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway, on the way to Subic from Clark.
Many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away the hunger. ~St. Basil
Rainy days are days I look forward to when the pitter-patter lulls us to sleep, allows us to stay in bed and cuddle with our love ones for a little while longer and to have an excuse to read a good book while drinking a hot cup of coffee. There is that other kind of rainy days though that I dread because it brings with it lots of water that flood our streets, causes the roofs to leak and makes soil on higher places roll down from where it should have been.
Rain washes away the grime and dirt even if brings with it more grime and dirt. It falls to make the earth greener even if it causes disaster when there’s too much.
I never could count how many sunset photos I have taken and even how many of these I have posted online.
This is one of my favorites though which I entitled “Chasing Sunset”
That girl “chasing the sunset” is my youngest daughter. She is a “musician’s friend“, our guitar-playing master. She just doesn’t like her videos shown to people she doesn’t know so I can’t actually put one
